Escaping Poverty Through Education

The Bali Children’s Project is a non-profit charity registered in USA and Indonesia. The organization originated in the early 1990s, when Joyce Scott and John Cooke recognized children unable to access school. They saw a cycle of rural poverty driven by lack of education, especially for young girls.

The Bali Children's Project's Goal is to help children attend school in order to "Escape Poverty Though Education", but that's not all.  At the Bali Children's Project they also  educate the families on proper hygiene, providing them mattresses to sleep on, teaching them the simplest things such as making a bed. Visiting the sponsored children here in Bali is an every day task for the Volunteers at the Bali Childrens Project.  They are also involved with Sex Education in high school in order to educate the locals about HIV/AIDS/STDS.  

After visiting The Bali Children's Project here just outside of Ubud, we knew we wanted to help support the local community and children we have grown to know and love. Being able to provide funding to enable more of these precious children not only an education, but a window into their future. Everyone has there causes and ever country, not excluding the United States has Children in Need. Bali is not alone in any means when it comes to impoverished kids needing education, but it is a place where small financial gifts CAN and WILL actually provide change.
